Since 1991, GTM group of Insurance Companies have been providing support to students throughout their secondary school life under its bursary awards programme and this year is no exception.
Three students who were successful in the Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA) have been selected out of many applicants to be aided by GTM insurance throughout their school life.
A short ceremony was held at the GTM, Grand Anse office last Thursday to present awards to the students who are children of policyholders with the insurance company.
According to GTM’s Acting Branch Manager, Delon Felix, the company is partnering with parents to provide the necessary support for the children.
“…Kids, that should act as an incentive for you all to work much harder to make your parents proud. Today we have three awardees for the 2016 qualifiers…it’s something that GTM will continue to do. You get that benefit once you maintain a good average throughout your five years of secondary school life…”, he said.
“…I just want to encourage you all to keep working hard, keeping making mommy and daddy proud and GTM will forever be here to continue to support you once you keep performing at average in school”, he added.
Assistant Branch Manager, Jassel LaTouche who also addressed the recipients pointed out that the assistance provided to the students is all part of the company’s annual social responsibility.
“Additionally GTM offers a school plus policy for all the bursary awardees for the five years in the secondary school …it covers the child medical bills caused by accidents, accidental deaths and dismemberment with maximum coverage of $10,000. The GTM group of insurance companies is proud to assist the children of the nation,” she said.
According to LaTouche, the company is using the opportunity to fulfill its role as good corporate citizen and to give back to its valued customers.
“We currently have a total of 13 awardees within the programme. These awardees are a true representation of hard working and articulate young people. It is through programmes like ours that we are able to support and commit to their future development”, she said.
“…You have been chosen out of many outstanding performances, you therefore has a responsibility to maintain those standards during the course of your secondary school studies. I implore that you work hard and inspire to be exceptional students with leadership character,” she told the recipients.
